Sketch Saturday Week #121

Hi everyone and Happy Saturday!!

Yaaaaay it's the weekend! Hope you've all had good weeks? Mine has been a bit tough but I'm looking forward to relaxing and lots of crafting this weekend! I got started last night at 'Kitten Club'. You're probably wondering what on earth Kitten Club is?? Well it's a card making class I host normally once a month with the amazingly talented Lisa Baker. Lisa takes the class and teaches us new techniques whilst we attempt to make our cards as good as hers and have a right old laugh at the same time!! A perfect combination for me - Crafting, Wine and Cake, although we do have to make the complicated cards first in case we all have a bit too much wine, lol!!

So onto my card for this weeks Sketch Saturday - Week #121. This week we're sponsored by Ah! La Carte who have very generously given one lucky person the chance to win a voucher for 10% off their next purchase and 2 (YES 2!!!) Wild Rose Studio's Stamps, what a great prize!! And to be in with a chance of winning these prizes all you have to do is make a card following the fab sketch. In my opinion it's a win win - what are you waiting for???...

So here's my card, hope you like it? I've rotated the sketch a little...

Side view of my card - I tried to take the piccie so that you'd see all the layers and dimension to the card, shame I'm such a rubbish photographer, lol!

I made this card for one of my oldest and dearest friends, Katie, who makes the most amazing candles. The Cupcake ones (hence the stamp!) look good enough to eat! She's doing the Moonlit Walk tonight to raise funds for the Heart of Kent Hospice. They did such an amazing job looking after Katie's Mum so I know tonight will be tough but also (hopefully) fun for her. The Moonlit Walk is kind of like the MoonWalk charity walk in London, but it's about 10 miles (I think!) not 26 and it's in Kent. I want to wish Katie the very best of luck for tonight, MWAH, you sooooooo ROCK!

I'm going to crack on with my next card now, why not hop over to Sketch Saturday for some more inspiration from my fantastically talented teamies :o)

Lots of love
